Pros Good Value, Challenging, Graphics
Cons None

It's sad that nobody ever eandeavored to continue with Starcraft franchise because it's definitely the best space strategy game ever produced. Good graphics and nice playability makes it a must play! STROOONGLY recomended! Read full review »

I love watching the Korean pro games on youtube. I had to buy this game, even if it was 10 years old.

This game is fun and each game is always different.

Pros Very balanced races, great overall system
Cons weak storyline
Recommended it? Yes

It's so difficult to start with Starcraft. What can I say other then what you know? It's so hard not to know this game, so few have played it, but then again it's not impossible that you haven't. So let's begin with the basics of the game.

Starcraft's fame sprung largely from it's simple... Read full review »

What is all about?
Well, starcraft is a rather old game (actually, this game was made in last millennium), but I never grew tired of it. It is like Red Alert, you can actually play it and play it and play it. Another plus are custom games and a map editor where you can also edit map rules... Read full review »

Pros Gameplay never gets old Variety of strategies to use Great multiplayer
Cons Addictive Somewhat predictable AI Some rush strategies employed by people in multiplayer

Starcraft is the best RTS I have played ever, and I have plenty of experience playing various RTS games. I bought Starcraft reluctantly on a recommendation of a friend, but it has been one of my best investments in any game ever, as it has brought me hours of joy. Starcraft allows you to play as...

Four scores and seven years ago...

Ok, maybe not the four scores part, but seven years ago I certainly experienced the (mis)fortune of taking a fateful plunge in to this game.

And now, seven years later, with broken dreams of entering in to an Ivy League school and all, the... Read full review »

Pros Campaign, single player, map creator, and my personal favorite multiplayer on battle net.
Cons Map creator's somewhat complicated

This game is the first computer game I ever got, and arguably the best. The first time I played this at my friends house, it was great, I couldn't stop playing single player battles against the computer, I've been hooked ever since.

The defining game of the RTS genre!!!

12 Helpfuls 13 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Extremely well balanced races, fun to play, and addicting
Cons Limited resolution, inconsistant online community
Recommended it? Yes

Where do I begin when reviewing a game like this. Starcraft began as a successor to Blizzard's immensely popular Warcraft series. However, the original production of Starcraft looked clumsy and uninspired and was often jeered at as "Warcraft in Space". Taking its fan's cries into consideration,... Read full review »


StarCraft- Possibly the best PC game EVER!

Pros Great Multiplayer option, good single-player campaigns, good game concept
Cons Single-player campaigns can be lackluster sometimes, BattleNet gets hacked way too much
Recommended it? Yes

When StarCraft first came out, Blizzard was a well-known company. It had succeeded with WarCraft and WarCraft II. Having played both these games, I was pretty sure that StarCraft was going to be a good, if not a great, game. The first time I played this game, I was blown away. Not only did Blizzard...

Grades? Who needs good grades?

It was my freshman year in college when Blizzard released Starcraft. Let the record show that my GPA after my freshman year was a 2.33 in a school where the only 4 grades you can get are A, B, C, and NR (for no record, meaning there's no record of you even... Read full review »

Cons hackers online

Starcraft. The very definition of addiction. Starcraft is one of Blizzard Software's older games (released around 1998), yet it still remains as one of Blizzard's greatest, and the whole Real Time Strategy (RTS) genre's finest. I wasn't really familiar with the RTS genre until playing Starcraft on... Read full review »

Pros easy to learn, fun to master, great story mode, and multiplayer action
Cons eventually becomes repetitive
Recommended it? Yes

Star Craft. RTS from heaven. You play as either the bug like scourge of Zerg, the highly evolved psychic Protoss, or the take no crap terran collonists. You take control of your troops in a god like view and train and battle your army. You can build any thing from the equivalent of a peasant to a... Read full review »

Pros Everything

Starcraft is one of the best RTS games of all time! Blizzard is one of the best RTS game makers of this day and age! Starcraft is like Warcraft in space. The two are almost identical. Starcraft has a unique program that comes with the game. It's called Campaign Editor. With this program you can... Read full review »

Pros Excellent futuristic RTS game
Cons none

I was browsing through some of the reviews for this game recently and I noticed a funny thing. All the reviews that gave it low marks or criticised it were extremely short, usually badly constructed with a high proportion of spelling errors, and just generally looked as if they had been written by...

A few years ago when a friend of mine gave me Starcraft I had never played a RTS (real-time strategy) game before. Up until that point I was content to sit at the controls of a WWI vintage fighter plane and punch German fighter pilot's tickets for hours on end. I lived in the world of Red Baron 3D...

Cons Can be a little repetitive when it comes to battle strategy.

I think the first thing that I thought when I played Starcraft was how much it seemed like Warcraft. Actually, I thought, "Isn't this Warcraft with just different names?" There are definitely similarities but there are also some things that separate the two. In fact, they both left me with a... Read full review »

Pros Strategy
Cons Unbalanced in some areas (fixed in Brood War)

Being a good old ex-Westwood fanboy, I've never liked Warcraft. The game just felt too much of the same after playing Command & Conquer. I mean, c'mon at least have quasi-different sides. I felt that Blizzard was doing nothing but mooching off Westwood's radical game design originally starting with... Read full review »

I don't know why everybody loves this game so much. Like I said twice before, it's a game full of suck. Bellow, I listed the top 5 bad things about this game.

1. Graphics look cartoonish and everything on the screen is huge! These cannot compare to Total Annihilation's graphics.
